There currently is no theme that really fits elementary OS, but there is a GNOME theme that adds a headerbar to Firefox. You can find it at
It looks like this:
You can install it by downloading these extensions and themes:
Extension that makes the notifications of Firefox use elementary OS's (optional)
Since Firefox Quantum, the extensions mentioned in the accepted answer has been discontinued. However, as noted by Mehmet Hanoğlu since Firefox 60+, the feature is supported out of the box.
To enable it, open the Customise option in the Firefox main menu and uncheck the Title bar check box.
For more information, see the bugzilla bug report or omgubuntu.
In the article that you've linked, they recommend using the HTitle add-on. Afterwards, you also need to add the headerbar userstyle and set Hide titlebar: Always in HTitle's add-on preferences.
There are several other Firefox add-ons that attempt to make it appear more native, but there's only so much that can be done. Firefox just isn't a native Gtk+ app. ...
You can set your $HOME directory as Desktop in xdg-user-dirs config file (~/.config/user-dirs.dirs).
This can be done manually through text editor. Open this file:
And add this line to the end of file:
To get an icon on plank (and in slingshot) an app needs to have a corresponding .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/.
The desktop file also handles MimeTypes and lets you specify additional menu options (such as 'Open New Window' etc.)
Note: If you install firefox from the apt repositories with sudo apt-get install firefox it will update to v42 and the ...
It is clearly related to pantheon-files, or at least in the file-chooser dialog.
For example, if nautilus is defined as default file-manager in elementary os loki, firefox will display correct behaviour when saving a file: nautilus-file-chooser shows up with last used directory path remembered.
I understand it's just a workaround, but it reveals the issue ...
Hopefully this will fix it overtime with version 59 of Firefox.
Update: In the latest update of Firefox (Quantum 60.0), this is now working! Just do this
Untick Title Bar
I don't know if this is an firefox bug or not but there are more topics about this

Firefox doesn't seem to be a MPRIS "provider"
Relevant Firefox bug:
Seems people are currently implementing this.
Some extra info: websites can share this info using the new Media Session API. Some resources:
Yes, they both work great on elementary. I'm using the beta of Firefox Quantum without issue and both the stable and dev version of Chrome. Again, they both run great.
You can download Firefox from the App Center. To install Chrome you can either install via:

The solution is to install gtk3-nocsd package and to preload the small library provided by it by adding something like:
in front of the command line launching your firefox.
The package is found in this repository.

I confirm the same behaviour, but don't believe it to be a Linux issue, rather a Firefox issue/setting upstream.
Open new tab in Firefox and type about:config in the address bar.
Accept the warning displayed.
Search for ui.context_menus.after_mouseup.
Change it from false to true.
Close tab and test.
I stumbled on the solution above ...
You probably added the official PPA for Firefox Beta to your repositories. In order to switch back to Firefox stable, you need to remove this PPA again.
Start Software Updater and click at Settings, now switch to the tab Other Software and search for the following lines:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-next/ubuntu trusty main
After trying other search engines and learning their syntax I was able to come across someone who had a similar issue on Ubuntu 12.04 and was able to fix it using
sudo dpkg --reconfigure --all
Which had me alter a few things like apache and ssl certs. After a reboot I don't seem to be having the issue anymore. I feel bad that I found the answer so soon ...
I think both Chrome and Firefox use PPAPI, the pepper flash plugin so could be a compatibility issue with that. I would try looking in ~/.xsession-errors or ~/.xsession-errors.old if you have had to reboot.
Also if you have an Intel display adapter then try enabling "sna" as the Acceleration Method, it fixes a lot of video issues with some Intel chipsets in ...
You actually did install Firefox the safe way inside the OS. However, you used the command line instead of a graphical frontend. So no worries, there is nothing wrong with your Firefox installation, both alternatives have the same result.
Under elementary OS / Linux often "there is more than one way to do it…"
Install Synaptic Package Manager

I'm not sure if Sean Patterson's answer is enough to prevent it from being updated by the AppCenter in the future.
Hence, I'd also mark the package as held back using ‘apt-mark’ command in terminal with root privileges.
For example, making your package say Firefox unavailable for install, up-gradation or uninstall, type:
apt-mark hold firefox
To make ...
if you save the torrent file on your pc, then by going to the downloads folder and right-clicking it you can choose which application to open it with. There you should also(however I don't remember how) be able to set it as the default app for that filetype
I'm unable to reproduce the error. I suggest right-clicking on the area you want to inspect and selecting "Inspect Element". Look if anything is out of the ordinary or try to toggle the CSS if you don't have the italics element showing like I do above. Page might just need a refresh.
Worst comes to worst, reinstall Firefox. It's likely something off with ...
